Q.

Please confirm the cheapest fee for a £695,000 residence? We are looking for a low cost conveyancing quote.

A.

Many firms claim to offer so-called cheap conveyancing quotes, but additional charges are often hiding in the solicitor's terms. Any disbursements should be included on the conveyancing quote Any extra costs listed in terms and conditions ought to be reasonable. We provide quotes, not estimates, and clearly state the fees for a standard conveyancing.

Q.

Do fixtures and fittings include things like fitted gas or electric fires?

A.

In general, there is no legal definition of fixtures and fittings. Completion or agreement of a fixtures and fittings form is unfortunately often left to the last minute, when a dispute may jeopordise the transaction. This makes a fixtures and fittings form so necessary.

Q.

How do I see if the conservation area we are buying in is being neglected?

A.

Following a campaign, English Heritage have assembled a list on the state of repair of conservation areas as well as the risk of a decline in standards. Conservation areas are created by the local Rochford planning authority, who preserve everything from including things like rundown streets, addition of unsympathetic windows and paths and footpaths.

Q.

Which local authority looks after Rochford?

A.

Q.

My wife and I are interested in purchasing in Rochford. How do I check if the building is in a designated conservation area?

A.

Conservation areas denote local areas of historic or architectural significance. A lawyer will address the consequences of purchasing property in a conservation area and be able to advise further.

Q.

Will I need searches for chancel liability? I am buying a home near a rectory built in the 14th Century in Rochford.

A.

Property owners neighbouring a local church must subsidise repairs, where chancel repair liability exists. Terms used in a property's name, like 'abbeylands', may indicate chancel liability. A conveyancing solicitor will be able to advise as to whether a chancel search is necessary, and recommend suitable insurance. Rochford churches where a chancel search may be necessary include and Sutton with Shopland and St Michael.

Q.

I am buying at auction and would like arrange fast conveyancing, how could we accelerate our conveyancing process?

A.

Crucial to a fast transaction is to use a communicative solicitor. There are, however, a range of things you as the buyer can also do to get moving sooner, including, pushing the solicitor to begin enquiries as soon as possible, responding to all correspondence via the fastest means and arranging any finances require to complete the purchase.

Q.

Are we advised to get a chancel search if we are intending to buy in the parish of Bradwell on Sea?

A.

The solicitor might recommend that a chancel search is taken out. In older areas of Rochford, chancel repair dues can be collected on current owners of a home where Parochial Church Councils have previously chosen not to do so, so it can be difficult to use this as a guide.
